Hello Rizki,


Thank you for the question.


The following are possible causes of fever accompanied by dry throat, lumps in the chest, and appendicitis and nausea:

Common cold.
Influenza.
Sore throat.
Dyspepsia syndrome.
Covid-19.

With this outbreak of covid-19 disease, all complaints of high fever (temperatures above 38 degrees) are accompanied by symptoms in the respiratory tract such as sore throat, cough, runny nose, until shortness of breath that occurs in people with a history of traveling abroad or areas in countries affected by the disease or contact with co-19 positive people need to be considered as a sign of the disease. But there are still other possibilities such as the conditions mentioned above, and you don't need to worry. You can check your risk of contracting co-19 on this page.


The most appropriate step if you experience the above symptoms is to remain at home for at least 14 days and not interact with other people less than a distance of 1-2 meters. Visit the nearest health care facility if you experience severe symptoms, such as severe shortness of breath that interferes with activity, and if there is a high fever (temperatures above 38 degrees Celsius) that do not improve with treatment at home.


The following recommendations you can do while at home:

Enough rest.
Take fever relievers like paracetamol.
Take medications that can relieve digestive symptoms such as nausea which can be caused by an imbalance of stomach acid, such as antacids.
Drink warm water to relieve throat. Drink 2-3 liters of water per day.
Take vitamin supplements to maintain immunity.
Gives warm steam to the nose, can be added with menthol to relieve clogged nose. Sleep with a few pillows to ease breathing.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or sanitizer.

Avoid sugary, sour, gassed foods / drinks such as soda, caffeine such as coffee / tea / chocolate, and alcoholic drinks. Avoid lying down after eating.
Avoid smoking.
Avoid touching the face.
Manage stress well.

Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.


Regards.
